Excellent local restaurant situated in a small side cobbled street behind the main Port area of Cannes. Set menus are great value for money as are the local specialities - i.e. moules with various sauces. Lovely friendly owners. We always visit at least twice during our stay each June in Cannes. I hope restaurant will remain the same under the... More

Many of the restaurants near the waterfront in Cannes are disappointing so we were pleased to stumble on this one, particularly when the plat du jour was blanquette de veau, a savory, tender comfort food version of this classic that was delicious. Others had boeuf bourguignon or mussels and also said they were good. Service by Angelique was superb. This... More

We went to Le Riche-Lieu last month while on a day visit to Cannes and were enchanted by this little place, situated in Le Vieux Cannes, just behind the market, in a pedestrian street, a few steps only from the harbour. We had a lovely meal on the terrace; the portions were very generous, the ingredients very fresh and the... More

On this narrow pedestrian walkway, we found this old style restaurant with a daily special that had a nice ring to it: entree of seafood gratin and a veal blanquette with big chunks of tender meat...miam! So we sat down at the terrasse and were able to see the cooking staff at work. Service was discreet and efficient, we were... More

The both Fixed Menu looked pretty good with interesting selections of appetizer, entree and dessert reasonably priced, and this friendly and very FUNNY waiter pretty much convinced us that we...
